An Eyvind Earle concept painting from Sleeping Beauty
1959, watercolor on board, depicting Maleificent as a dragon behind the castle walls, signed lower right Eyvind Earle.

The Disney Studio hired Eyvind Earle in 1951. Within two years, he became the color stylist and inspirational artist for Sleeping Beauty. His artistic style, derived from medieval tapestries based on paintings by Durer and Breughal, had a large impact on the look of the characters and backgrounds. Many of the artists working on this film thought his style was a bit austere for this film, but Walt Disney thought otherwise.
